  • Here we go! Another summer of radical-leftist violence

    05/14/2022 6:28:09 AM PDT · by rktman · 27 replies ^ | 5/13/2022 1926 hrs edt | Patrice Lewis
    Well, it looks like we're in for another weary summer of horrific violence from the radical left. This time their cause célèbre is the Supreme Court leak concerning Roe v. Wade, but the issue hardly matters. For these radicals, the important thing is just to pick something and run with it. Isn't it interesting how the solution for every disagreement is "fiery but peaceful" violence? It helps that it's now May and the weather is decent. Fiery-but-peaceful violence is always the most enjoyable when the sun is shining and the temperatures are forgiving. Who wants to riot in a blizzard?...

  • Rioters tore through Portland causing more than $500,000 worth of damage - but cops did NOTHING because woke new law stops them using pepper spray or tear gas: Angry residents ask 'Does that mean we are now like a lawless city?

    Portland was rocked by a violent, 100-person protest that caused $500,000 in damage Police stood idle as rioters destroyed the city, citing a new law that prevents law enforcement from using means of crowd control like pepper spray, tear gas or incapacitating projectiles Cops added they have not received full clarity on the bill's limits, so are following the most restrictive interpretation of it Antifa rioters tore through the city following a memorial for an activist killed in October 2019, whose mother organized the protest and called it a 'night of rage and anger' SNIP

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Protesters held a sit-in Thursday at the Interior Department building in downtown Washington and clashed with police as they challenged fossil fuel projects and called for the declaration of a climate emergency. Multiple arrests were reported. An Interior Department spokeswoman said a group of protesters rushed the lobby, injuring at least one security officer who was taken to a nearby hospital. Police and protesters clashed outside the building, and officers used Tasers against several unarmed protesters,...
  • Under New Eviction Moratorium Rules, Capitol Hill Rioters Allowed To Reside In Nancy Pelosi’s Office

    The Babylon Bee ^ | August 12, 2021 | The Babylon Bee
    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Well, this really backfired: according to sources, the new and totally constitutional eviction moratorium handed down by President Joe Biden means that Capitol rioters are able to camp out in Nancy Pelosi's office indefinitely. Not good! Pelosi asked them to leave, but she was powerless to do so, as the eviction moratorium had taken effect. Sad! "Shoo, peasant! Shoo!" she said, waving her arms and trying to get the man sitting at her desk to leave. "It's 3 p.m. -- ice cream-eating time for Auntie Pelosi!" Womp womp! At publishing time, Pelosi had asked for the attorney general to...

    The circus and attention-seeking have not stopped. Cannon is raising funds and still getting in front of microphones. She is also wearing a sling for what may or may not be an injury related to her arrest. You may make your own assessment. And the entourage seems permanent. On Wednesday, members of the Georgia Republican Party were on-site to witness the spectacle, and they noticed something interesting: an armed guard escorting the entourage.
  • Armed Protesters Begin To Arrive At State Capitols Around The Nation (Boogaloo)

    Armed protesters have arrived at multiple state capitol complexes across the country Sunday morning. This follows a special bulletin from the FBI last week that warned: “armed protests” were being planned at 50 state capitols and the US Capitol in Washington, DC, ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. While the protesters are being identified across various platforms as members of a so-called “boogaloo” movement, they largely appear to be anti-government – some of whom call themselves “liberty boys,” and others who oppose the conservative Proud Boys. Their sudden emergence surrounding the inauguration is curious to say the...

    The Los Angeles Police Department received criticism from Democratic lawmakers and the Black Lives Matter group, who argued that officers who used batons against a crowd outside Mayor Eric Garcetti’s home used excessive force and infringed on protesters' First Amendment rights.
  • Florida “Anti-Mob” Bill Gives Civilians Immunity If They Shoot Looters Or Run Over Protesters

    This week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the drafting of a new piece of legislation that would expand the state’s Stand Your Ground law. He is calling the legislation an “anti-mob” bill and it seems specifically targeted at the Black lives Matter movement and the ongoing protests against police brutality that have swept across the United States in recent months. The new legislation, if it becomes law, would allow armed citizens in the state of Florida to shoot, and potentially kill anyone that they suspect of looting a home or business. According to the Miami Herald, the legislation is an...

    Attorney General William P. Barr told federal prosecutors in a call last week that they should consider charging rioters and others who had committed violent crimes at protests in recent months with sedition, according to two people familiar with the call. The highly unusual suggestion to charge people with insurrection against lawful authority alarmed some on the call, which included U.S. attorneys around the country, said the people, who described Mr. Barr’s comments on the condition of anonymity for fear of retribution. The attorney general has also asked prosecutors in the Justice Department’s civil rights division to explore whether they...

    Minneapolis city councilors told the city police chief on Tuesday that their residents are feeling “terrorized” and say police are “nowhere to be seen” months after the police killing of George Floyd set off protests against police brutality. The Minneapolis City Council called on Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo to address constituents’ reports of increased street racing, carjacking, robberies, assaults and shootings. The meeting this week came months after the city council unanimously voted to amend the city’s charter to allow the city police department to be dismantled. The proposal, which would need to be voted on as a ballot...

    Support for the Black Live Matter movement dropped by 12 percentage points since June, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center. Fifty-five percent of U.S. adults said that they supported the racial justice movement in the September survey, compared with 67 percent in June who said the same. Among Black Americans, support for the movement has remained the same at roughly 87 percent. White Americans' support for Black Lives Matter went down from 60 percent in June to 45 percent in September and among Hispanic Americans support decreased from 77 percent to 66 percent. Support for the...

    Nine protesters have been issued trespassing summonses for marching onto a private St. Louis street in June, a demonstration that prompted a couple to emerge from their home with guns to confront the demonstrators. Mark and Patricia McCloskey were both charged in July with unlawful use of a weapon in a polarizing case that landed them a spot at the Republican National Convention last month. Police spokeswoman Evita Caldwell on Friday confirmed that nine protesters have been issued summonses but said the St. Louis City Counselor's office is still deciding whether to issue charges on the citations. The Rev. Darryl...

    U.S.—Communist marches around the country are peacefully intensifying. But the marchers have found a new target of their ire: restaurants. Never having seen people with plenty of food to eat, the commies are becoming agitated and confused and are calling for the closure of the evil capitalist eating establishments. The communists were confused and frightened by the sight of people eating food aplenty. Concluding it was part of a sinister capitalist plot to take over the world and then raise the living standards for everyone, they demanded the restaurant be shut down. "You guys are eating food? Smells like evil...

    U.S.—Videos have emerged from across the country of protesters attempting to stop traffic, futilely pushing back against racist trucks and bigoted Hummers. But, sadly, stopping traffic somehow hasn't ended racism. So rioters are being forced to turn to a new strategy: blocking train tracks to stop freight trains in the name of social justice. "Turn around and go the other way!" shouted enraged protesters outside Portland as a freight train hurtled toward them at 60 miles per hour. The engineer, being a racist, refused, and continued to go right toward them, blowing his horn, which is apparently some kind of...

    Protesters in Portland threw rocks and fire bombs at police who in turn used tear gas on Saturday night and at least one person was injured, on the 100th day of demonstrations in the Oregon city against racism and police brutality. Police described what they called “tumultuous and violent conduct” by protesters on the city’s Southeast Stark Street. "Fire bombs were thrown at officers, injuring at least one community member", police said on Twitter while re-tweeting a video posted by a New York Times reporter showing fire bombs being thrown and a protester running with his legs on fire.
